Posted at February 9th, 2017 | by Shivani Goel | in

100 Pipers’ initiative ‘Play for a Cause’ will be happening in India, this time with The Dire Straights Experience. The band will be hitting up two cities, Gurgaon on the 17th of March and Bengaluru on the 19th of March. This will be the first appearance on an Indian stage for the British legends and they’re doing this to help provide sustainable drinking water to villagers in Rajasthan.

The shows in India will have the original Dire Straits band members; Chris White, Chris Whitten, and Terence Reis. Chris White said, “India has always been on our list and we are very excited to play in India. Our two city tour in India, in Gurgaon and Bangalore, is to support the 100 Pipers ‘Play for a Cause’ initiative to provide water to villages in Rajasthan. The power of music is incredible and it brings together people across nations and cultures. We are happy to become a part of this great event which is bringing music and artists together to make a difference to society.”

Proceeds from the ticket sales will be donated towards the construction of water conservations structures in Rajasthan and 100 Pipers ‘Play for a Cause’ has partnered with Advit Foundation, an NGO working towards Environmental Resource Conservation and Livelihood Enhancement.
